About Private Hospitals
1. They are seen within minutes not hours – this relieves pain, complications and stress
2. They are seen by the most senior emergency care professional first – in public systems typically you are seen by less experienced staff and your case becomes elevated as required.
3. They don’t want to clog the public health system – they want to make room for real emergencies. In the last two years, the Prince Charles Emergency Department has grown from 12,000 to 36,000 patients, and expect to cater for up to 50,000 patients in the next two years. Given their emergency is not a regular expense, our patients typically would prefer to outlay the money so that those who can not afford to pay the BNE way, have better access in the public system.
